STARGATE'S SEVENTH SEASON BOASTS A HOST OF CELEBRITY GUEST STARS
seventh season has attracted celebrity guest stars with an impressive
array of credits garnered from a huge number of projects on both film
First to make an appearance this season will be Jolene Blalock, who
plays Sub-Commander T'Pol in "Star Trek: Enterprise", a notable
sex symbol among the fanboys. Blalock will be portraying Ishta,
the leader of a tribe of rebel female Jaffa warriors. Ishta's
young warriors were all ordered sacrificed by their 'god' and the clan
consider it their duty to save their sisters from certain death.
Their precarious existence is threatened even further by the dire
shortage of symbiotes. All rebel Jaffa face the same choice: to
kill their brethren to take what they need or to die. Ishta turns
to SG-1 seeking to find another way. There are hopes
Blalock's role will be a recurring one and she will feature as a love
interest for Teal'c, played by Christopher Judge.
EVOLUTION PARTS 1 AND 2>>>
Evolution features an appearance by Canadian actor Enrico Colantoni,
who will play the embittered, eccentric Burke, a one-time buddy of
O'Neill's, disgraced and ekeing out a humdrum existance in a Honduran
backwater. Colantoni will be very familiar to genre fans: he
played the leader of the innocent aliens who recruited Tim Allen,
Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and the gang in the sci-fi satire
"Galaxy Quest". He's starred in TV shows "Just Shoot Me", a
critically acclaimed ensemble comedy with George Segal and Laura San
Giacomo, and "Hope And Gloria" and has an extensive list of film and TV
credits to his name.
HEROES PARTS ONE AND TWO>>>
This late season two-parter (episodes 14 and 15) is expected by
Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Joseph Mallozzi and Teryl Rothery to be
the best story Stargate has ever produced. We get to see our
'heroes' of SG-1 through the eyes of a film crew recruited by the
outgoing President to tell the truth about the Stargate programme,
ready for the day the SGC finally becomes public knowledge. Film
maker Bregman is determined to tell the truth and chafes at the
restrictions imposed on him by Hammond and the resistant SGC
personnel. His interviews with each member of SG-1 and with Dr.
Janet Fraiser will be a greater testament to their heroism than he
imagined possible. Bregman is played by Saul Rubinek, veteran of
films such as "Nixon," "True Romance," "Unforgiven," "Bonfire of the
Vanities," and "Wall Street".
Heroes Part 2 features a hard-hitting investigation by NID agent
Woolsey, the latest in a long line of machinations by Senator Kinsey to
dispose of Hammond and SG-1. After a mission has tragic
consequences, Woolsey grills the members of SG-1 in an attempt to
apportion blame. He's placed a dollar value on the head of every
member of SGC personnel, to Hammond's fury. Woolsey isn't the
stooge Kinsey may think him, he's tough but independent. Woolsey
will be portrayed by "Star Trek: Voyager" veteran Robert Picardo.
Picardo played Voyager's holographic Doctor, a perpetual fan favourite
and perhaps the most intriguing and engaging character on the show.
Rounding out the trio of celebrity guest stars featured in "Heroes" is
Adam Baldwin, who plays Col. Dave Dixon, a devoted father of four and
veteran SG team commander. His team locates a ruined city of the
Ancients and find themselves under attack from a strange hovering
device which fires staff-weapon like blasts at them. Dixon's team
is overwhelmed, SG-1 and Dr. Fraiser go in to rescue them, with fatal
consequences. Adam Baldwin reportedly had a blast filimg with the
Stargate cast and crew. Most recently, he portrayed mercenary
Jayne Cobb in Joss Whedon's "Firefly". He's an alumnus of "The
Visitor" and "X Files", and has a host of notable film and TV
appearances in his filmography, including "Full Metal Jacket," "Radio
Flyer" and "Wyatt Earp".
THE LOST CITY PARTS 1 AND 2>>>
You can't keep a bad senator down and Kinsey is back with a bang in
"The Lost City Parts 1 and 2", attempting to use the SGC's new
civillian director, Dr. Theresa Weir, to finally rid himself of SG-1
and Hammond. Weir has two doctorates, speaks five languages and
has brokered a number of highly sensitive peace treaties.
Although antagonistic to the military and they to her, she takes the
appointment as the SGC's director and is tasked with setting it up as a
civillian operation. Her timing couldn't be worse, and the need
for Hammond and SG-1 greater, as Anubis finally stops by Washington DC
to greet the new President in person. Weir is to be played by
actress Jessica Steen, a veteran of TV commercials and a lead in series
"Captain Power," "Home Front," and "Earth 2". She played
Benton Fraiser's half-sister in "Due South" and an astronaut in the
Bruce Willis starrer "Armageddon." Thanks to Elyse at SG-1 Spoil Me for the tip.
